Nerve is a student-run science, technology and engineering magazine based out of Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Since its inaugural issue was released in August 2012, the magazine has evolved by connecting with readers and improving content and style. It’s been a difficult process though, as Canada doesn’t have many prominent science communication platforms in place and this restricts inspiration and encouragement. This has also limited students’ exposure to general science news; for many, reading a science magazine for leisure is a novel concept. The benefits of Nerve’s presence are limitless though, and we will see it into the future.
